First public event at the ‘Dream To Change the World’ exhibition
Opera lovers, londoners and dwellers of the regions around, this one is for you and certainly not to be missed. London-born Jamaicain Composer Shirley Thompson (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shirley_Thompson_(composer))’s Pioneering New Opera Set for Opening Night of Tête à Tête Fest.
SACRED MOUNTAIN, Incidents in the Life of QUEEN NANNY of the MAROONS, is a hypnotic psychological narrative based on the life of Jamaica’s Boudicca, with original concept, libretto and music composed by the esteemed composer, Shirley J. Thompson.
Notably performing is English soprano opera and concert singer Abigail Kelly is (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abigail_Kelly).
This announces itself as an evening to remember, packed with women of standing from the inspirational Queen Nanny of the Maroons, Jamaican emblem and national hero to the accomplished Shirley Thompson and the amazing Abigail Kelly. If nothing else (which I certainly doubt), this will be an evening celebrating female empowerment.
